Beyond Astrology Immersion Workshop
Port Townsend: Oct 10 - 13, 2019
Classes: Sep 6 - Sep 27, 2019 Fridays, 10am - 12pm PDT
Beyond Astrology is the practice of entering the portals of the planets and stars and moving beyond predictability to the place of empowerment and spiritual awakening. There are three components to this work: astrology, sacred geometry and spiritual practices.
From October 10th - 13th, you can immerse yourself in working with the planets, sacred geometry and meditation in order to arrive at a vision and plan for being present to the changes happening in the world over the next eleven years. Prior to October, there will four on line classes, that will be recorded and available after the class, that will assist in preparation for the workshop. You can pick and choose what you want to do. Take the classes individually ($33/each) or take all of them. Each class is a stand alone class. Take the October workshop all on its own without the classes ($333). Scroll down for more information on the classes and the workshop.
Note: I cancelled the Spirituality Classes and two of the Sacred Geometry Classes. We will cover enough in one Sacred Geometry class to get us going towards drawing the Heavenly City. We will get familiar with some of the basic tools and concepts with Sacred Geometry. (I cancelled the classes because the eclipses have been kicking my butt and I haven't done any promotion and don't have enough people signed up to make it worth while. And I'm not ready.) The astrology classes are beginner classes (and good reminders for experienced students).
Also note: Payment happens through the Payments Page on my website--not through Schedulicity. When they ask for a credit card (which they shouldn't because I don't take credit cards through Schedulicity--and they keep telling me that they don't ask for a credit card)--just bypass that in whatever way you can and do not give a credit card. Sorry if that is inconvenient. Other than that, I really appreciate Schedulicity. If it gives you any challenge, just send me an email and tell me you want to take the class.
Classes will be held on line through the Zoom platform
Fridays, 10am - 12pm PDT (Pacific coast time)
Introductory Sacred Geometry Class on September 6th at 10am PDT
Sacred Geometry is the practice of transcendence through drawing geometric patterns. These classes will be a basic introduction to drawing starting with the circle and moving into more complex patterns.
Using a compass and straight edge, through simple instructions, we will draw the Flower of Life, all the time exploring the transformative significance of this symbol filled with circles.
From drawing the circle, we will move into drawing the square and explore the fascinating ratios between the circle and the square. Pi revealed.
From the circle and the square, we will move into the triangle and find the elusive seventh harmonic.
This class will set the stage for drawing the Heavenly City, a sacred geometry diagram designed by Jon Michel incorporating the New Jerusalem as written in multiple sacred texts.
Introductory Astrology Classes
There are many forms of astrology. My studies have taken me through the basic western model, into esoteric studies, through the realms of Vedic Astrology and into my own work. These classes will get us familiar with the basics of western astrology so that we can begin to deepen our studies and eventually go Beyond Astrology.
The Planets: September 13th
An introduction to the Planets, the myths and symbols, their lessons, meanings and gifts. Each planet has a star in the center and offers us life and freedom from suffering. As we understand how to honor each planet, we have an avenue for transformation.
The Houses: September 20th
The Houses hold us in the third dimension. They are the containers of our life and correspond with the twelve areas of life. Understanding our perceived limitations is an early step in transcending these limitations.
The Aspects: September 27th
The Aspects show us the karmic nature of the planets. Through understanding the angles between planets, we have a doorway into the dance. This class will be a basic introduction to the aspects through the lens of harmonics.
Recordings of all classes. An email will be sent after class with a link to download the recording.

Beyond Astrology Immersion Workshop
This four-day workshop in Port Townsend, WA (Oct. 10 – 13) will be an attunement with the upcoming Radical Reformation from 2026 – 2031. After exploring a historical context and working with our individual charts through sacred geometry, we will come to envision our roll in the coming spiritual revolutions.
When: Thursday, Oct 10th at 6pm and end at 5pm on Sunday, Oct 13th.
Cost: $333 (Lodging, meals and travel costs not included.)
Where: Fort Worden, Port Townsend
Astrological prediction works best on the sheep—those who follow orders and do as expected—never individuating, never breaking free from the norms of society. The more conscious we are, the less predictable our lives become. I am committed to living an entirely unpredictable life, infused with inspiration informed by the vast intelligence of the universe and in alignment with a flow of synchronicity that brings wonder to every moment.
With this workshop, we will become aware of the planetary movements occurring over the next eleven years. We will use sacred geometry and meditation as part of an aligning process with what is arising in the world. In this workshop we will come up with a new vision for our life. We know this world is changing dramatically—environmentally, politically and socially. How do we continue to live in and embrace this vastly changing landscape?
The perfect patterns of the planets give us a window, a lens from which to view these changes. Spiritual practice, our path of service and our creative passion are the three legs of this work. We will make (at least for this weekend) our spiritual practice, our path of service and our creative passion the cornerstones of our life and work with aligning our relationships, livelihood and home-life to exist in support of these three legs (instead of the other way around as is so often the case.)
Vision, Power, Justice and Reform are the four stages of evolution in the consciousness of humanity. We move through these four stages in many ways and in many different timings. For this workshop, we will focus on a 248-year cycle with these stages. My intent is to offer a perspective that will support you in knowing where to set your sights, where to focus your intent, so that you are creating the most aligned life—spiritually, creatively and in service to the release of suffering of all beings.
Here is my current idea for the schedule for the weekend (subject to change)
6:30 - 8:30 pm
Orientation and introductions
An 11-minute mantra practice for the weekend.
Setting the stage for the weekend with ritual and invocation.
And introduction to the Heavenly City and the chart we will be working with for the weekend.
9:30am – 12:30pm: Historical context for the shifts that humanity is going through. A quick walk through 4,000 years of history to come to our current point. Getting perspective on what is happening in the world at this time.
3:30pm – 6:30pm: Sacred Geometry. Drawing the Heavenly City—exploring the messages encoded in the diagram. Overlaying our astrology charts into this diagram.
Saturday: Spiritual Integration
9:30am – 12:30pm: Working with understanding our individual charts. Working with the 16 stages and what that means for us personally.
3:30pm – 6:30pm: Creative Expression. Exploration through creative process. Opportunity to work in a group or individually.
Sunday: 1:30 – 4:30pm
(Chance to dance at 10am at For Worden—not included—but open to all.)
1:30 – 3pm Sharing our experience with the group. Making it real. Creating accountability.
3 – 4:30pm Closing meditation and chanting
Location of the workshop: Fort Worden
Our class will take place in the beautiful Fort Worden in Port Townsend, WA. Port Townsend is a lovely small touristy town with cute shops, a fantastic coop, lots of healers, an awesome new age bookstore (Phoenix Rising) and a cool tub soaking place I keep hearing about. It skirts the Olympic National Park.
Fort Worden was built as an actual fort prior to WWI. It still carries a bit of the energy of that time—for those of you who are sensitive. The Port Townsend community has done a lot to reclaim this area. In fact there are wonderful conferences happening there often. One of my favorite ecstatic dance classes happens there (in a nearby building) on Sunday mornings. There are places to stay on the campus that are pretty reasonable. There is a café for breakfast and lunch right on the campus and a restaurant for lunch and dinner. Plus beautiful walking trails and a beach a short walk from our classroom. There will be long breaks so that people can have time to walk and eat in the middle of the day. Port Townsend is about a mile and a half away—a half hour walk with a big hill. There are cool places to stay in Port Townsend. My favorite is the Waterstreet Hotel. Rooms with shared baths are around $70-80 a night.
Weather: October can be a beautiful month in the northwest. Sunny days in the 70’s are common. And—it can always rain. Usually not hard—but gray skies and misty light sprinkling are common as well with temperatures in the 50’s. There is camping at Fort Worden—which might work great—and it might not.
